I cut my teeth fishing on the Trinity River when I first moved to Humboldt County. It's where I learned how to read steelhead water, cast a spey rod, and swing a fly. Now, when I fish on the Trinity it feels like meeting with an old friend. It, along with the Klamath River, is one of the last strongholds for summer run steelhead in Northern California. While there are numerous methods and techniques used to target Trinity River steelhead, it is hard to imagine one more pleasurable than a well swung traditional gliding across a picture perfect run.
